You know what that means.
BABY CRAFTING TIME!!
My lovely cousin Cara just gave birth to a beautiful baby boy..... and I was so excited to make a fun hat to send to her baby shower! After searching through patterns on Ravelry, I decided to make a monkey hat. I finished it in one morning, and LOVE the finished project! All of the rest of you expecting babies.... you are probably going to get one of these too.
I love instant gratification when knitting or crocheting. I can get distracted quite easily or get bored, so baby projects are the best! So fast, and just oh so adorable.
When our friend Stef was pregnant with her second little one, I put my brain to work! Stef and her lil'family LOVE hockey, hence the skates!
I worked up the skate by crocheting just a classic baby bootie pattern, like this one, and began with a white sole. I then created the skate blade with a knit pattern that sunflowerfairy had designed; attached. I then crocheted a single chain to create the look of thicker lace.
Stef was gracious enough to share a picture of Birkley and his tiny skates.
Her hockey family.
